....this is why good pots & caps matter. The Kid's sense of humour is nearly as wicked as his vibrato.
FWIW I've had Les Pauls that were wired out of phase (a la Jimmy Page) & magnetically out of phase (the polarity of the magnet in the neck pickup is reversed) and there is a difference. That hollow, honky Peter Green magic only happens when the volumes of the magnetically out of phase pickups "pass each other in the night" - - bridge at 9 & neck at 8.5, etc. A slight adjustment makes a big difference in the tone, but the volumes of the respective pickups need to be close to each other.out of phase pickups is an acquired taste....
certainly not for me.
